Happy to stay home

Traffic around here is always a bitch but on holidays it’s worse.
Although, the other day had to take the cake on bad traffic. G and I were heading out to the farmers market when at 15th and Liberty streets we stopped on Liberty street for the light. There were two vehicles in front of us. The light turned green and the first one went across the intersection.
The second car’s driver seemed momentarily distracted and sat there a bit before pulling out. I was just stepping on the gas when another car came flying down 15th, ran the light, and almost hit the vehicle in front of us. Only missed hitting it because of the quick thinking of the driver of the car in front of us who was able to get out-of-the-way with some very smart maneuvering.
Our hearts were pounding because we SAW how close it was to being a serious accident with fatalities–mere inches.
Also, had the driver in front of us gone right through the light behind the first vehicle we would’ve been hit by the speeding red light running car. Yep, our hearts were still pounding when we got to the market.
First stop was the Clover Hill Winery shop for a taste and two bottles to take home.
You all have a good Thanksgiving!
